"Katy's Little Nighttime Diddy" is a sleepy jazz instrumental that was inspired by insects of the night that harmonize and make their own special music. The title of this song was inspired by a little katydid which was fondly named after Katy Perry. This song was originally created as an entry in the SoundCloud Smithsonian Remix Contest, which required musicians to incorporate sounds from nature into an original song.
Samples were taken from the following Smithsonian Institute Encyclopedia of Life Recordings, Courtesy of Thomas J. Walker:
1. Sounds from Singing Insects of North America: Japanese Burrowing Cricket (Velarifictorus micado)
2. Sound from Singing Insects of North America: Chisos katydid (Paracyrtophyllus excelsus)
